One thing came up while trying this - I'm on a text install image
system, so my / is a ramdisk. Any ideas how I can change the sd.conf on
the USB disk or reload the driver configuration on the fly? I tried
looking for the file on the USB drive, but it isn't in the rootfs
(perhaps it's tucked away in some compressed filesystem image). Thanks!
